SBS involvement with EU’s HYPOBATT project

Dr Stathis Tapinos, Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship, represented Strathclyde Business School at the General Meeting of HYPOBATT on July 27-28.  

This is a programme that aims to reduce the carbon footprint of marine transportation with electrification. HYPOBATT is an EU-funded programme with 18 partners from 10 different countries working on the shore side and the ship side by developing two full modular multi-MW recharging systems in two European ports with fast turnaround times of battery electric ships and easy charging of larger on-board batteries. 

The SBS team (Professor Lesley Walls; Professor Matthew Revie; Dr Stathis Tapinos) are working on evaluation of new business models for hyper vessel chargers considering future development and energy infrastructure at the ports. Stathis delivered the first steps of a scenario planning intervention for the Future of Sustainable Marine Transportation, facilitating the identification of the key driving forces. 

The EU-wide pilot project, with a duration of 42 months and funded with 9.35 MEur under the HORIZON 2020 initiative, aims to advance the electrification of ships. Strathclyde is one of the 18 partners from 10 different European countries that make up the HYPOBATT consortium.
